Business Continuity

Business continuity refers to Northwestern’s ability to maintain operations during and after an emergency or crisis event.  If business continuity is effectively in place, Northwestern’s key academic, research, and administrative functions will be minimally impacted by a disruptive incident. Business continuity is a risk management technique that is closely related to emergency planning.

The sections on this website provide outline responsibilities for business continuity at Northwestern, and provide a number of tools and resources in order to help you plan accordingly.
